Crank: High Voltage
Stay Charged, Stay Alive!
Chelios faces a Chinese mobster who has stolen his nearly indestructible heart and replaced it with a battery-powered ticker that requires regular jolts of electricity to keep working.
Movies like these exist in another realm. They do not make sense. They are proud of it. They celebrate a full-testosterone, chauvinistic, sexist, semi-pornographic, parodic, overtly violent and electricity-charged tsunami of the ideas that precocious adolescents under the influence of nerve-altering hallucinogenics would have if given lots of budget, a camera and lots of porn actors incuding Ron Jeremy in the cast to work for them in order to party with basically everything that is wrong with our insane society.
Yes, I love it. This is art.
A tracking shot might be moral
But no morals here.

Fuck You de cinema.
An immoral cinema
Is also a free cinema.
Not a spectacle we want
But a spectacle we deserve.
what did chev chelios do to deserve any of this
Quite possibly one of the most entertaining movies ever made, Crank: High Voltage earns it's title by injecting itself with high octane visuals, editing, and action, making for a energizing watch. There is even a Japanese-style Kaiju fight. This movie throws everything and the kitchen sink with the plumber into the fray. It's honestly amazing this is an American production. it's zaniness feels very foreign, and I understand why many didn't care for this movie. I, of course, had a total blast with it.
So I decided to review this before I see Hardcore Henry in the near future, since I heard comparisons between these films. If Hardcore is as fun as this, then I should have a good time. And if you enjoyed Hardcore and HAVEN'T seen Crank: High Voltage, you should do so immediately. Highly recommended: 9/10
I'm speechless, I don't know what to do. I don't know if what I watched was genius or trash but I know that I've never seen anything like it. 'Crank: High Voltage' is crazier than the first movie in every single way. I didn't know if that was possible but it happened. I laughed my ass off during Crank but I had my jaw dropped while watching High Voltage. High Voltage is crazier, nastier, gorier, and weirder than the first in every single way. From the moment it starts, not only does it never stop but it only gets crazier as it goes on. This is one of those movies that must be seen to be believed as anything that I write won't be able to accurately describe this movies madness. I'm shocked that this got made, I don't know how Neveldine/Taylor made this. I don't know how this movie exists.
I don't know.
Over the top. Insane. Offensive… but was I not entertained? False.
Man, these guys put all their efforts into shooting action scenes in interesting ways and clearly have no idea how to string these scenes together into an entertaining action movie. There is just no momentum maintained between any of the fun bits, and it starts dragging after the ten-minute mark.
The minute you saw Jason Statham's name on the poster you probably already know what the movie's gonna be like and you'll probably be right. Crank is an exciting action movie like all Jason Statham's movies. You will get what you expect.
Technically this was on at the video store I work at, along with a few other movies throughout the past couple nights. When we put on a movie there, I don't usually feel like I've actually watched it, but I actually saw enough of this one to log (last night we went from Furious 6 to Furious 7 to this, but actually got to take this one in more than those, hence no log). Seems to defy a rating, but has quite the bouts of inspiration. The final image is searing.
dont do drugs kids
Can lightning strike twice? It did for me.
I was thrilled to be back in the room with Jason.
I was grateful the writers had listened to my criticism and made his girlfriend a stronger character (over the top but the whole movie was over the top). Not always a fan of special effects but when they are driving the story they are a thrill in the extreme.
Great hard quick sex doesn't get the raps it deserves.
Well... fuck you too!
"Suck my fucking dick!"
The king of exploitation. Crank: High Voltage is racist, homophobic, offensive, and absolutely insane (all done with a wink to the audience). This is definitely one of the most entertaining action movies I've ever seen. Jason Statham is a fucking rockstar. This movie blew my mind.
An exploitive spectacle for the modern age
